It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 3, Page 7, Book 13
Plant three rows of Peas:
Peace of mind.
Peace of heart.
Peace of soul.
Plant four rows of Squash:
No garden should be without Turnips:
Turnip for service when needed.
Turnip to help one another.
Turnip the music and dance.
Plant four rows of Lettuce:
Lettuce be faithful.
Lettuce be kind.
Lettuce be happy.
Lettuce really love one another.
To conclude our garden we must have Thyme:
Thyme for fun.
Thyme for rest.
Thyme for others.
Thyme for ourselves.
Water freely with patience and cultivate with love.
We reap what we sow -- you 'should' have a bountiful garden.
WORD FOR TODAY:
to put or set in the ground for growth
to set or sow with seeds or plants
With thoughts of Spring on everyones mind this time of year, gardening is high on the list of things we want to do. Everyone loves to peruse seed catalogs or dream about what they want to plant in their gardens.
A garden can be a reflection on our own lives. Some things are going great and some parts are struggling. A gardener gives every chance to a plant that is struggling. The same should apply to us. It's good to remember that gardening, like your life isn't a project you tend to when it's the right season. It takes planning and readiness all year long.
